ROMANS 5:1
JANUARY 25, 1998 A.M.

I. INTRODUCTION

A. FLYING EXPERIENCE A FEW YEARS AGO.
PLANE WAS ABOUT TO CRASH. FAITH WAS
PLACED IN THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER.

B. FAITH IS A PART OF EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE.

1. THINK OF SOME THINGS YOU DID BY
FAITH TODAY.

2. CANNOT LIVE APART FROM FAITH.

C. WHY IS IT SO HARD, THEN, TO PLACE FAITH

D. WE NEED TO KNOW OUR HEAVENLY FATHER

UNCONCERNED OR BLIND.

E. HE ASKS US TO PLACE OUR FAITH IN HIM.
